God's light—it's for real

From the May 2007 issue of The Christian Science Journal

Can't find God in your life? Maybe you don't even believe God exists. Or you wonder: If God, or something like God—a power, an Intelligence, SOMETHING—does exist, then how do I feel this power or presence?

People have wrestled with the "God-question" for millennia. And their answers range from total denial of God's existence (atheism) to God being a man with a long beard sitting on a throne on the clouds to people believing they are God themselves. And everything in between.

However, in 1875, Mary Baker Eddy published her seminal book, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, and in this book she gave the scientific, metaphysically sound explanation of the nature, character, and identity of this power we call God: "The great I AM; the all-knowing, all-seeing, all-acting, all-wise, all-loving, and eternal; Principle; Mind; Soul; Spirit; Life; Truth; Love; all substance; intelligence" (p. 587).
